HFI to Display Soviet Mi-24, Bell OH-13G
Helicopter Foundation International (Booths 30-32) has announced its lineup for the Heritage of Helicopters Display during Heli-Expo 2012. Three historical helicopters are on loan from Texas museums along with curators who will speak during a presentation. The HFI static display will feature a Soviet-era Mil Mi-24 Hind with a chin turret, a Bell Helicopter OH-13G Sioux—a variant that was heavily featured on the TV series “M*A*S*H”, and a Bell UH-1 Iroquois Huey that was used by Marines to rescue soldiers during the Vietnam War.
